Faint notes of the classic petrol on the nose. Mouth watering acid and juicy lemon curd on the palate. 12%. Slightly off dry initially but finishes dry and lengthy.

Starts out fresh and crisp, but botrytis notes of chamomile and ginger start to creep in. This wine is messing with my mind. So many complexities. Intense and lightly fragrant but rich and captivating.

The minerality is pretty and gentle while the acid is perfectly mouth watering. Really classy wine.

Flowery, perfumed aromatics; rich and round, possibly even advanced, without as much structure, backbone, as anticipated; medium, off-dry finish. Alarmingly expensive given reputation and what is actually in the bottle.

Lovely aromatics of lemon zest, ginger, lychee & white flowers. On the palate notes of stone fruit, citrus & minerals accompany a food friendly acidity & dry finish. Paired very nicely w Roasted Chicken with Thyme & Caramelized Onions.

Just enough botrytis to be sexy without being slutty and a bang on palate of Alsatian Riesling electrical ballet.
